Speculocrian (speculo: mirror in latin, locrian: referring to the scale, meaning "our own reflection on locrian") is a fun electronic track that tries to show off a different perspective of the locrian mode, being commonly known as the most dissonant mode of the major scale, often disregarded as an useful scale. This time we inspired from midtempo, glitch hop, neuro, electro house, drumstep, complextro, future bass, trap, and last but not least, jazz to create an energy-filled but also tastefully dynamic track whose main driving force is an arpeggio riff that sounds simply magical.


Here's a fun fact: the vast majority of the sounds you hear in this track we crafted from scratch in the FL native synth Sytrus, this includes all the main elements, drums (kick, snares, claps, cymbals, percussion, etc.) leads, bass, chords, all kinds of FX, background ambience... Anyway, the point is that, we limited ourselves to use exclusively that and not any third party synth or any kind of samples, the only thing we used samples for was for vocals in the end and for foley, as percussion and ambience in some parts of the track. But the challenge doesn't end there, we were restricted to using only stock effect plugins for mixing and processing all the sounds, all just to demonstrate of how much you can really do with FL Studio if you know the tools very well.
